Transfer Guides & Agreements

FRCC students have great transfer opportunities. Articulation agreements for transfer to a college or university help ensure that you won’t have to retake successfully completed courses or earn additional credits to enter as a junior, unless you change your major or degree program.

Transfer Guides for Colorado Schools

With an associate degree you only need 60 more credits to get your Bachelor of Arts (BA) or Science (BS) degree. To see which courses to take at FRCC as part of your associate degree that will transfer and apply to the bachelor’s degree requirements at the university, see general transfer guides for Colorado’s four-year schools.

Major-Specific Pathways
